Best recording is actually probably the Later with Jools Holland one, but it's abbreviated.
Swoon! I can't wait for the tour next year... someone just needs to let James know that having more material should equal a longer set.

I dunno. I mean... he's not, eh...
Well, he might need a bit of a sit-down in the middle of an especially long set.
I love how he kicks up the intensity when he hits this part....
You spent the first five years trying to get with the plan,
And the next five years trying to be with your friends again.
Oh, you're talking 45 turns just as fast as you can
Yeah, I know it gets tired, but it's better when we pretend.
EDIT: Oh wait, I spoke too soon. The ending is great.

Bottom left corner is Doyle, right?
I had similar confusion, but I'm pretty sure it's top right corner.
There were rumours of an of inter-band romance, but as near as I can tell, somebody just spotted AF's Colin and Sarah together and didn't recognise one of them.
Either that or it was James & Win. I haven't ruled this possibility out.
Also, I'm saddened that not one of you picked up on the Basketball.
Al Doyle is the ginger in the back row - center. With the glasses.
Between them, those two bands have an unusual ration of Daywalkers: Normies.
no, Al Doyle is at the top center, 4 people in from either side. Win Butler is in there too? and Richard Reed Perry (the geeky looking string player from Arcade Fire) 3rd to the right in the front? what the fuck kind of faggy reunion is this?
It's a double band class photo and it's awesome. Win and James are kinda friends, Win and Will used to sneak onstage to do backing vocals for North American Scum.

Win Butler dances to LCD Soundsystem like a teenager dances to his first Smiths record, by the way.
That song still makes me feel bad when I sing it, too. Sorry, North Americans. We love you really.
James Murphy is the voice of this generation, of this decade.
More importantly, LCD Soundsystem are a tremendous band and everything James Murphy turns to awesome, awesome gold. He knows how to use Kermit right, dammit.
Ah ok clarified, but I'm pretty sure all Arcade Fire jokes are in-jokes.
